The guide was thorough in her descriptions and knowledge of the history of Rhodes. She entertained us with stories of what life was like so that when we went into the different sections of the palace we could imagine vividly what she had described historically. Great itinerary and time-tempered tour!

We had a great tour, Nickolas is a wonderful tour guide. We met him at the entrance to the old town , did a walking tour up to the castle, “skipped the line” where he led us through.. The wine tasting was awesome and set in a beautiful courtyard. Would do it again and highly recommend.

A great and inexpensive idea for sightseeing, especially with children or teenagers. The puzzles add flavor and are quite interesting. During our game, one puzzle out of ten seemed to be out of date.

Nikos our guide was fabulous. Enthusiastic, very well informed and made the tour really easy and interesting

Our family really enjoyed this tour. We learned a lot and had a terrific time. Nick was a great guide.
